Welcome to my online gallery!
Here I showcase my latest sculptures, mostly made of wood, but also hybrid designs from other materials.
My special focus is on what each tree has experienced, what formed them, including everything that we normally see as "flaw" or "error" and remove. For me, those are the most interesting parts, because they often hold the real character and expression.
Just as humans, trees carry their history with them, the scars and deformations, the stress, the deprivations and dis-eases, just as they carry the light, the abundance and the warm summer rain.
I get inspired exactly by that and try to amplify the special beauty of those different parts and make them into something new.
With other materials, like plaster and clay I'm also not looking for perfection, but for authentic presentation of what defines human life much more than what we show on the outside.

...has always been my favourite path.
Waldorf school, carpenters apprenticeship, working in theatre, stage design, props, film and tv sets and finally decades in 3D-graphics, design and multimedia were my studies. And each new project extended my horizon and my abilities.
Over the years, a certain aesthetic crystallised, a love for organic flowing forms with nature as the big teacher, model and constant inspiration.
The cottage in the woods where I often work in summer stands surrounded by large pines, beeches and birches, with gigantic oaks strewn in, hundreds of years old.
This is where the first sculpture came to be. It opened something inside of me that has grown and broadened. It led me back in a big circle to where I started but as a totally different person who has left a lot of baggage behind and made room for his very own way of being.
And this is also what I look for in every piece of wood, every tree, every material. And each "wound" and "fault" is precious to me, since those make us who we are and show us the way.
